Whole-genome resequencing of Hanwoo (Korean cattle) and insight into regions of homozygosityDownload
Lee, Kyung-Tai, Ahn, Sungmin, Choy, Yun H., Lee, Sang-Heon, Jang, Gul-Won, Liao, Xiaoping, Lee, Seunghwan, Lee, Sung-Yeoun, Chung, Won-Hyong, Stothard, Paul, Choi, Jung-Woo, Kim, Tae-Hun, Kim, Bumsoo, Kim, Jiwoong, Lim, Dajeong, Moore, Stephen S., Kim, Namshin
Background Hanwoo (Korean cattle), which originated from natural crossbreeding between taurine and zebu cattle, migrated to the Korean peninsula through North China. Hanwoo were raised as draft animals until the 1970s without the introduction of foreign germplasm. Since 1979, Hanwoo has been bred...
Xylo-oligosaccharides and virginiamycin differentially modulate gut microbial composition in chickensDownload
Zhao, Xin, Pourabedin, Mohsen, Guan, Leluo
Background The emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in pathogens have led to a restriction on the use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal feed in some countries. The potential negative after-effects of a ban on AGPs could be mitigated by improving animal intestinal health...
Spaner, Dean, Mather, Diane E., Brathwaite, R. A. I.
Three local varietal types of corn (Zea mays L.)—an improved landrace ICTA Farm Corn' derived from the Tuson population, the open-pollinatedAcross 7728', and the hybrid Pioneer 3098'—were grown at three cash-crop farms in Trinidad, and evaluated as green corn for agronomic, quality, and chemical...
Yield components of day-neutral and short-day strawberry varieties on raised beds in British ColumbiaDownload
Baumann, T. E., Eaton, G. W., Spaner, Dean
Eight day-neutral and seven short-day strawberry (Fragaria ×ananassa, Duch.) varieties were evaluated on raised beds during 1990 and 1991 in the Fraser River valley, B.C. Among day-neutral varieties in 1990, total variation in marketable yield originated in fruit count (26%), total yield (18%),...
n-3 fatty acids inhibit transcription of human IL-13: Implications for development of T helper type 2 immune responsesDownload
Cameron, Lisa, Madsen, Norman, MacLean, Emily, Vliagoftis, Harissios, Field, Catherine J.
Fish oil supplementation during pregnancy has been associated with lower levels of cord blood IL-13, suggesting that the administration of n-3 fatty acids may attenuate the development of allergic disease. The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism by which n-3 fatty acid administration...
